Lighting is one of the most functionally important aspects of interior design. Light levels can significantly affect an individual’s mood, health, eyes, and sleeping habits. Filling your home with the appropriate level of light and a lighting system that works for you is one of the best ways to improve your day to day functions. Proper lighting will reduce headaches, minimize eye fatigue, and can help to prepare your body for rest to make restful sleep easier to achieve.
Lighting is also crucial to creating a mood and an aesthetic in a home. In interior design, the type of lighting can set the tone for a room and is often one of the central pieces of the décor. Currently, Singaporean lighting has seen a rise in the popularity of false ceilings as the primary lighting system. False ceilings are structures suspended from the actual ceiling which can be used to enhance the aesthetic appeal of a room. False ceilings provide texture and visual intrigue; but they also have a huge advantage when it comes to lighting.
Installing a false ceiling gives the homeowner control over exactly the type of lighting they want, from the level to the warmth to the positioning. There are a few different types of lights that are made possible by false ceilings, but the most common lighting systems for a false ceiling are: recessed lighting, cove lighting, or hybrid lighting (a combination of the two). The lighting systems of false ceilings have become a popular trend lately due to the softness of the light that they emit and their versatility in a variety of situations / rooms.
The main draw of false ceiling lighting is that it allows for a level of control often missing from simple overhead ceiling lights. While it is an effective way to transform the lighting of a room, it is not the only option. There are a huge variety of lighting types and styles on offer. Finding the right one for your home is simply a matter of selecting the right store.
Where to buy lights in Singapore
There are a few strategies you can employ to help ensure the store that you visit is the right one for your lighting needs. Firstly, you should consider the décor of the rest of the room and the interior design styles that you want to create. This will mean narrowing down whether you want a look that is contemporary, vintage, rustic, classic, modernist etc. After this has been decided you can begin filtering out stores which do not cater to your selected style.
The next step is to decide what type of lighting you want – whether you are hoping for a pendant light to become a feature of the room, or a more subtle lighting fixture that will blend into the background. Having a set budget in mind here will also help you to narrow down which lights are most likely to work well in your home. The best lighting stores will have a variety of options in your selected style already, so budgeting can help you make the final decision.
